Is your land contaminated?

On behalf of Rock Palermo of Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC posted in Oil and Gas on February 27, 2015.

It is not easy for the untrained eye to spot contaminated land. You might be suspicious about whether your property is contaminated due to salty water coming from your well or bare spots in your lawn. These are both signs of potential contamination problems. If you suspect that your land in Louisiana may be contaminated, it is important to talk to an experienced environmental law attorney about your concerns.

Waiting to find answers can result in significant problems for you, related to your health or that of your family, and/or the value of your property investment. We can help.

When our legal team sets out to determine whether someone's land has been contaminated by oil or gas, we:

  • Thoroughly investigate DNR records to learn whether drilling has occurred in the area and, if so, we study the details of those projects.
  • Review historical photographs to see how the land has changed over time.
  • Bring in environmental consultants to visit the land in question.
  • Conduct tests to evaluate groundwater or well water contamination.

When we uncover contamination, we take immediate steps to protect landowners, aggressively pursuing legal claims against the companies that are responsible.

If you are suspicious of environmental signs of contamination, contact a reputable lawyer to learn more. If you are suffering medical symptoms that you believe may be caused by exposure to contaminated land or water, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. These symptoms may include headaches, vision impairment, rashes or burns, shortness of breath and gastrointestinal discomfort.
